Uhhh, as I recall, sequestration WAS the compromise. A compromise initiated and pushed for by OBAMA! And Obama has not suggested any alternative cuts to substitute for the sequestration cuts. Barky OWNS this.
You know that and I know that, but the low information voters will never know it because of the complicit MSM. The GOP has masterfully been triangulated into a corner. Even if the GOP leadership had cojones, there is no way they can win this public relations battle. Sequestration will cost jobs and likely lead to recession, but it is the only way I see that a dent in future budget growth can be made. It may be better to face the pain and suffering of a collapse now rather than later.
